A FABULOUS GALA EVENT
for Pioneer Museum is Taking Shape!
Friday, April 26, 2013
If you are one of the lucky 200 folks to attend PIONEER PEARLS on Friday, April 26, you just know you are going to have a super time! Read on fellow Roblansif you want to be in the mix!
The upscale gala dinner-dance is the third one put on by PIONEER MUSEUM. The venue is the Grand Ballroom of the Paso Robles Inn. This elegant evening will feature a champagne cocktail hour followed by a marvelous sit-down dinner and live dance music. Beverages will flow freely throughout the evening. Timed perfectly after tax season and before the wedding/graduation season, the weather is great and itís about the last time to put on the fancy attire. There will be tuxs and gowns gracing the room and the beautiful ladies and handsome men add to the ambience of the Ballroom!
Of course this is a fundraiser and all proceeds go toward Your Pioneer Museum adjacent to the Paso Robles Event Center. If you havenít been inside Pioneer Museum in a while, you are missing what is fast becoming ďOne Of The Best In The West.Ē The PIONEER PEARLS events have supported a vast majority of the ability to make the stunning display and facility enhancements that the community and visitors have applauded so loudly.
Perhaps the largest silent auction ever held in the county is being planned! Fabulous items from limo tours, wine packages, meals, event tickets, massages, jewelry, B&B stays, and custom one-of-a-kind pieces are in the works. Plenty more items are coming. Different from most fundraisers, the auction will go right up to the end. And again different, there will not be a live auction at the request of many who simply want to dance the time away and make private donations!
Tickets, which include the meal and all the beverages and the music, are $100 per person. Everything for your enjoyment is included! Tables are set for 8 so call your best 6 friends and have a real party while supporting the Museum that boasts 6000 local artifacts and hosts as many visitors each year. Tickets have been selling fast and when we get to 200, thatís all there is!
Sponsors and auction item donors will all be listed in the program. Tax receipts of course are issued. Call Chuck Desmond at 237-2046 or CDESConsult@yahoo.com and heíll take care of everything for you.

The purpose of Pioneer Day in 1931
was to thank the area ranchers and farmers for their
business during the difficult years of the Depression.
Their produce helped to keep the local economy going.
The merchants closed their doors for the day and
invited the farmers and ranchers to come to town
and enjoy lunch in the park. The tradition has
continued with a free bean feed in the downtown city
park, following a parade on Spring Street that begins
at 10:00 a.m.
